About New World Drums

Each of New World Drums has its own special beauty born of the combination of beautiful woods, careful construction, and attention to detail. Our drums are objects of art as well as functioning musical instruments.

Handmade Drums from New World Drums with Instant Slide Tuning New World Drums are made with a variety of wood - from hardwoods like Maple, Walnut, and Ash, mixed hard and soft wood accents, to Baltic Birch finished in various colorful shades and patterns. We use a variety of custom stains and dyes to provide you with a choice of color from rich natural wood grains to almost any color in the rainbow! We roll and weld the metal rings, form, dye and trim the drumheads, and lace the drums with tuning beads. We primarily use drum heads are made of goat hide, which has crisp highs and resounding lows.

New World Drums are very lightweight for their size, yet sturdy enough to go anywhere. Most drums range from 2-10 lbs. Play our drums in a cave, by a river, on a stage, in a studio, or in a circle around a fire. They can easily adjust to any situation.
